    Default Summary of the last ever Bob White Invitational

    Thanks to all who participated in last weekend’s Bob White Invitational. There is no way I can describe all the great things that happened, so I’ll get right to the key point.

    On Monday night, Bob White’s Karate Studio was honored to present a check to the Royal Family Kids for $100,000. Let me repeat that, we presented a check for $100,000 to the RFK. That donation was made possible because of all the hard work and generosity of all our supporters. This donation, our biggest ever, will allow hundreds of abused children around the country (and world) see a better future.

    I do have to announce that last weekend was the last ever Bob White Invitational.

    Scared you didn’t I? The tournament is now officially known as the “Bob and Barbara White Invitational”. This is a fitting change to recognize all the work Barbara does and we are happy to announce this change.

    Finally, here is a group picture of some of the most senior Kenpoists and other martial artists in the world. How many can you name?


    For the kids,
    Vishal

    That's amazing, Vishal. So glad to hear it went so well. Missed it this year; hoping to show up better next.

    As for the naming? I never realized kenpoland had so much in common with Looney Tunes... I see Yosemite Sam, Sylvestre the Cat, Speedy Gonzalez, Marvin the Martian, Hassan ("Hassan, Chop!"), and so many more. But seriously... what a great turnout of so many lineages and figures from the history of kenpo. I missed a good one.

    Clear mind, clear movement. Mastery of the Arts is mastery over the Self. That in this moment, this motion, the thoughts, memories, impulses and passions that cloud the mind must yield to the clarity of purpose, and purity of motion.
